The Haul – March 16th, 2016

The Weekly Haul Header

Welcome back to this week’s books at The Weekly Haul!  A quick little comic shop story — when I usually go to pick up my books, I’m welcomed by an empty store, just me and the owner.  Granted, I tend to go late right before they close (thanks to my long commute), but it’s been a while since I’ve been at the shop with other customers.  Point being: I don’t know how to compare my amount of weekly comic purchases with other comic readers.  I’ve always thought that I spend too much on books, especially since I’m usually angry with around half of the comics I read.  This week, though, there was another guy in the shop.  His total: $150 worth of comics from this week’s new releases alone.

What are all of you spending weekly on average?   Let me know in the comments.

And one more thing — a big congratulations to Batman fan and supporter of the site, Matt, on his wedding!

The Haul – November 11th, 2015

Anyone read the comic Nonplayer?

This is a beautiful comic — like no joke gorgeous art — that has been plagued by extensive delays.  The first issue was released in 2011 to critical and fandom acclaim, but it took until the summer of this year for there to be a second issue.  And still no third as of this posting.

So, when I made a Twitter post about our own delays in getting posts up on the site:

Yup, that’s Nate Simpson, the creator of the comic that I was being self-depricating in reference to.  So, without a doubt now, I’m totally internet famous.

This week also marks the start of the next Marvel/Netflix show, Jessica Jones, based off the excellent Bendis/Gaydos Alias series from the early 2000s.

We’ll be putting up an installment of Small Screen Comics this week, where I’ll take a look at the Alias series, the character of Jessica Jones, and the comic-versions of the supporting characters that you’ll see in the TV series.  Keep a look out for the update!

Deciphering the Teaser – Marvel’s Spring 2015

photoOver the past few weeks, Marvel has been releasing teaser images of past events and crossovers, leading many to think that the comic publisher was planning something big and many more to think that they were losing their minds looking for things to rehash.

Turns out that the former group was right and all these promo images, each with the date “Spring 2015” on them, are tied to the previously released teaser for the new Secret Wars (an image that we dissected previously and you can find here).   Now, with the release of a YouTube video, Marvel has made it clear that each of these images represents an alternate universe or timeline, now all wedged together into the new Battleworld.

So how about let’s go through the images, huh?
